Default Back or belly?

We have an issue going on about Jaime being put down to sleep ........ I
myself had always layed my kids on thier belly, they did sleep better.
Mari says she heard/read that sudden infant death is linked to this?

Thanks for the link ! So far I have learned that the crib bumpers must
go, and yeah back is better , I never knew there was even more of a risk
if the baby is born of a teenage mom ........ I still can't seem to
grasp why sleeping on the belly or side could stop a baby from breathing
? Think I'll dive deeper into that link.......Thanks again! Bev

When I had my daughter and there were all these new things.... my mother
said that she doesn't know how the hell she managed to raise 3 kids! It was
pretty stressful for her at first. Then we just stopped listening to the
experts and just had fun.

Oh geesh - I can date my babies by them not being able to make up their minds
about this.

When my son was born, you were supposed to put them on their tummys. but
between his sore belly button and his circumsicion, he was not happy on his
tummy so I let him sleep on his back.

Then when Sarah was born, they were supposed to be on their sides. So I put
her on her side and she would roll over on her tummy.

Now they are supposed to be on their backs. Forgive me if I express a little
skepticism about the whole deal. Frankly, I had babies that slept so little,
whatever position they wanted to sleep in, they slept in.
